Partnering Children on their Developmental Journey

Aprés Match!


The boys and girls from 5th and 6th Classes took part in the Cumann na mBunscol Finals on Wednesday and after the matches, we all went to Supermacs to celebrate the end of the football season for the year. Thanks to the continued support from all our parents, we were able to fund this for all the footballers.

Meet & Greet!


We would like to welcome each and everyone back to a new school year. As usual, we have a busy schedule ahead and to start off with, we are holding a “Meet & Greet” night at the school on Tuesday 25th September at 8.30pm. This will be an opportunity to reacquaint with those we haven’t met for a while and to get to know some more of the members of our school community. We look forward especially to meeting all those who are new to our school.

Summer Disco 2018


Our final event of the school year was very successful and great fun, as we got in the mood for Summer at our annual Summer Disco. We bopped and rocked the night away, said farewell to 6th class and looked forward to many great events in the coming year.

Thank you to all parents and children for your support, cooperation and help during the year. We look forward to working with you all again next year!

Farewell to Rang 6


We visited the school today and presented the outgoing 6th class with a hoody each, which we hope they will wear with pride as they remember their eight years in Ratheniska NS. Go n-eirí an bóthar libh!

Coin Collection 2018


Many thanks to all the boys and girls and their parents for the fantastic response to this year’s coin collection. All money collected during the year goes straight back into subsidising events and activities for our children.

Go raibh míle maith agaibh!


Count your Coins!


We have decided to hold our annual coin collection again this year. The collection jars are ready and the class who fills their jar first will be treated to pizza for lunch! Juniors got the ball rolling as some of them emptied their coins into their jar!

Welcome to our prospective pupils!


On May 21st, we welcomed the parents of the new Junior Infants who will be starting in September to our school. They were met by Ms. Dunne, Mrs Stapleton and Mrs Dwyer and we had the pleasure of providing refreshments at the end of the meeting. We look forward to working with them on their journey through our school.

Congrats, a chailiní!


We would like to extend our congratulations to the girls who won  the Cumann na mBunscol Camogie Final. We were delighted to fund a celebratory trip to Supermacs after the match!
